Having been named as one of the top retailers of the past year, Olga Karput’s KM20, short for “Kuznetskiy Most 20,” concept store continues to pave the way for the fashion hungry in Russia. Not only has its presence run strong in the world’s largest nation, its influence has also managed to spread across the globe with its constant collaborations, art instillations and exhibitions. Along with housing some of today’s hottest brands like Vetements, Off-White™ and local talents Gosha Rubchinskiy and Tigran Avetisyan, KM20 has a long list of collaborative arsenal under its belt. In the past 12 months alone, the retailer collaborated with streetwear darlings Virgil Abloh and Heron Preston along with English sportswear label Umbro and the berlin-based 032c. With 2019 marking the store’s 10th anniversary, here’s to another successful decade in the industry.
